On average, students who take our SAT success prep course increase their test scores by 260 points! That’s because our classes combine expert materials with in-person instruction by dedicated instructors to deliver information in a way that kids understand, helping students boost their scores and confidence. Our SAT prep courses are held in local neighborhoods and are always small, personalized, and conducted in-person. Over the past 15 years , we’ve been able to help thousands of students in McLean, Great Falls, and Charlottesville achieve better scores and get into the colleges they deserve.
What are Study Lounges?
Study Lounges are hour long guided-study blocks held twice a week in which students can gather to work on homework, review concepts, and ask questions of their instructors. Conducted in small classrooms by course instructors at our GLC offices, these hour long blocks are optional but highly encouraged for students who want to gain the most from the SAT Success Course.
What if my student misses a class?
We recommend he or she attends that week's Study Lounge to work with an instructor through the most important missed material. We find that students typically need to attend one Study Lounge for every two hours of missed class time.
What is an SAT diagnostic test?
Diagnostics are real SAT tests from previous years released by the College Board (the organization that creates and administers the SAT). GLC offers the chance to take three diagnostics with each SAT Success Course. After completing the diagnostic, students receive a comprehensive score report that pinpoints areas for improvement and progress over time.
What if my student can't attend an SAT diagnostic test?
We can administer SAT diagnostic tests any time during our normal tutoring hours. Call or email your local director to schedule a make-up time that works best for you.
Who is eligible for the free course retake?
Everybody! All students are guaranteed a free retake of the course regardless of their improvement. The free retake may be used for any of our school-year or summer SAT classes, with the exception of the class leading up to the March SAT.
Does GLC sign my students up for the actual sitting of the SAT?
No. The College Board administers the actual SATs, and you must register through the College Board website. Register early so you can ensure getting your preferred testing location.
